Doc Antle indicted on Wildlife Trafficking Charges following an investigation by the Virginia attorney general's animal law office.

Tiger Kingstar, Doc Antle, is being charged with one felony count of wildlife trafficking, one felony count of conspiracy to wildlife traffic, and numerous misdemeanor charges.

Doc Antle, who owns the Roadside Zoo in Virginia and Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina, is being indicted along with two of his daughters, according to a press release sent Friday by the Virginia attorney general. Tawny Antle and Tilakum Watterson are both charged with misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals and conspiracy to violate the Endangered Species Act.

The Doc gave Tiger King fans a tour of his sprawling animal estate in the Netflix documentary that has also brought attention to currently incarcerated Joe Exotic and recent Dancing With The Stars contestant, Carole Baskin.

The indictments follow a months-long investigation that ultimately found that Antle and Keith Wilson, owner of Wilson's Wild Animal Park, had both trafficked lion cubs between Virginia and South Carolina. The investigation includes the execution of a search warrant on Doc Antle's South Carolina property in December 2019.
